Home   |   Regions   |   United Kingdom

The United Kingdom is the most favoured inward investment location in Europe, attracting around 40 per cent of Japanese, US and Asian investment into the EU. German investment into the UK remains at a high level with over 2,000 subsidiaries of German companies operating in the UK employing about 300,000 people. The reasons for its popularity are many as it has a great deal to offer overseas companies. A large and attractive market, a highly skilled, flexible, English-speaking workforce, and an environment which allows business to prosper.

Companies based in the UK are well-placed to do business in the global marketplace. Britain's integrated transport network provides fast, low-cost delivery. The UK's comprehensive and toll-free motorway and road network links all industrial centres to air and seaports, and every location in the UK is within 100 miles of a container port. The Channel Tunnel links the UK by road and rail to the rest of Europe, and both Paris and Brussels are just three hours' journey from London by rail.

Labour market regulations in the UK, including working hours, are the most flexible in Europe, and staffing costs are highly competitive. The UK has a strong science and technology base, with world class design, research and development disciplines. Many UK universities and scientific institutes are taking part in collaborative research projects with businesses.

"The UK and Germany are the two biggest countries in terms of employment for Rolls-Royce. Many of our people, including myself, have spent time in both locations in their careers. We therefore fully support young talent who wish to study in both countries as this supports the integrated work environment in Rolls-Royce. Well-educated experts are important for the success of our company and the aerospace industry. Through integration into our specialised departments, students can also gain invaluable practical experience and we can identify potential candidates for future employment."
